Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Punsoh Very comfortable room and great location in Waikiki
I was very pleased that I chose the Holiday Inn for our stay in Honolulu. The room was very clean and spacious. There was easy access to the beach using the surfboard alley by Cheesecake Factory across the street.
The reception staff was very friendly. We arrived early in the morning and they offered to store our luggage for check in later in the day.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JoGar13 Nice Stay
We've stayed here before (3 years ago) that's why we chose it again for another visit. We chose an Ocean View room and were extremely happy with our room (2503). Highly recommend paying the extra for the Ocean view room. The sun drenched the balcony in the morning then you got very welcomed shade for the rest of the day. The staff in the hotel are fantastic. Our housekeeping lady went above and beyond to make us happy. Check in and out was a breeze. The bed in the suite however needs to be replaced. It was very uncomfortable and worn. Not complaining, I think this is the only way the hotel knows when beds need to be replaced. Any concerns or problems we had with the suite were addressed immediately. The valet parking was a breeze and having a self laundry area was great! Location can't be beat. We had dinner at Jimmy Buffet's. The Veggie Burger I highly recommend. LOVE the Land Shark beer!! We had cocktails at the Surfing Museum several times. You can't beat their Happy Hour that's for sure. We will recommend to family and friends and stay here again. Thanks to Reid and all the staff at the Beachcomber!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by inga723 Wonderful stay at a great price
My husband and I spent 10 days here to celebrate our 50th birthdays and 25 wedding anniversary. The hotel was in a great location, the staff was very helpful and friendly and the Jimmy Buffet restaurant was very convenient and the wait staff was terrific. Our room was comfortable, not overly large, but always clean. The pool was a great afternoon getaway. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don359 I just don't understand!
I have read the other reviews and, I REALLY just Can NOT understand the complaints! WE thoroughly enjoyed OUR stay at the Beachcomber! 100%!!
Seems to me that IF you want a "sweeping" ocean front view then you REALLY need to stay across the street at the OCEAN FRONT Properties! But, get out your billfold and, take out that second mortgage because those rooms are a MINIMUM of THREE times as much money!
The Holiday Inn is very reasonably priced! YES, IT IS ACROSS THE STREET from the beach so why would anyone expect to have an un-impeded view of the Ocean? Better Yet, GET OUT of your room and, walk across the street and, go down to the beach! You'll REALLY have a GREAT VIEW!! Our room was on the SIDE of the building and, WE could see the Ocean just fine! WE were quit happy and, Actually, WE thought being able to see the Royal Hawaiian and, Sheraton Waikiki was REALLY a great bonus! The Royal Hawaiian is a BEAUTIFUL structure!!
Even while outside on our balconies (yes the rate was so reasonable we could afford TWO rooms for LESS money then ONE room across the street!) BONUS!! But, OUTSIDE on the balcony we were NEVER bothered by ANY noises! And, we weren't UP on the 19th floor we were on the 7th floor. I never heard any BOOMING Music. And, INSIDE the room all of the sounds of the street were GONE!
The staff was always very cordial and, very willing to be helpful. Truly the Aloha spirit was very alive here. We ate at Jimmy Buffets Buffet for breakfast a few times and, were satisfied with the quality of the food and, found dinning alfresco a great way to spend time together over some waffles, eggs, bacon and, sausage. I especially enjoyed the 'mini-bagels'
WE also had dinner there once or twice and, enjoyed our meals then too and, thought being in a cave was really pretty kewl.
Additionally, WE found the location of the Beachcomber to be extremely convenient to the international market place just to the rear of the Hotel. WE found great little eateries and, some awesome 'what not' shops. Just about ANYTHING you are looking for is RIGHT THERE! (don't be afraid to haggle I think they expect it) I did haggle and, got a MUCH better price! But, then, I am NOT at all shy.
What else can I say? I had absolutely NO complaints of any kind and, I was initially concerned that the location might be an issue and, it certainly was not for us. WE actually enjoyed the short walk to the beach and, had some GREAT chats on the way! We ALSO found the surf board storage racks to be quite interesting along the sides of the beach access walkway. Some really kewl Long boards. And, NO, Charlie Don't surf!
In Closing I will say to anyone thinking of staying at the Beachcomber, Don't Even Hesitate! You WILL have a GREAT stay! AWESOME Hotel. WE certainly had NO issues what so ever and, found the staff to be VERY attentive. Who could ask for anything more? Thanks for reading my Review I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed posting it here!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tibster Third Trip to Hawaii - third stay at HI Beachcomber Waikiki
This Hotel is everything it advertises itself to be. It is not 5 star so dont expect 5 star. But it is a very comfortable, clean well managed 4 star hotel. The staff have been excellent on all three stays here. We travelled from Australia and never considered the need to change hotels in Waikiki. It has a great location, the staff as I say are excellent, the rooms are very well cleaned and prepared daily, althought they do show their age a little...but that is not an issue. Ocean views - well I can see why some complain it is not panoramic unobstructed views, but I found it quite adequate and actually - the ocean is boring at night, but the evening and night time frontal hotel views down onto Kalakaua and the street activities were far more interesting. During the day you can see up to the beach no problem.
The hotel and staff are also very community minded and fully support many activities and cultural aspectsn of Hawaii.
My only complaint - we had to leave and come home.
Mahalo to Dean and staff - we will be back again for sure.
